With only one weekend left until Thanksgiving, it’s time to start checking all of those holiday chores off of your to-do list so you that you can sit back, relax and enjoy some turkey… or if you’re anything like me, you are ready to dive into that pumpkin pie! One thing we all have on our checklists for the holidays is to get our houses, and our dining rooms, company ready. Here are a few quick and easy dinner table centerpiece ideas to help you check one more thing off your list.
I love using food in unexpected ways, and it really is so easy. The best part is that you can pick up everything you need while getting the rest of your groceries! These artichoke and asparagus candle holders are the perfect touch to your Thanksgiving table.
Use What You’ve Got
Instead of using traditional vases for your arrangements, try something a little different and more unexpected instead. Pitchers, wineglasses or mason jars make great stand-ins for the common vase, and they are more unique and fun. You can line your table with small bright bouquets in stemless wine glasses or mason jars, or create one big arrangement in a pitcher with a mix of lavender, greens and baby’s breath. Perfect for this time of year!
Some of us are still holding on to our pumpkins from Halloween, and even if you aren’t and still want to try this idea, they are easily found at any grocery store. Pumpkins are perfect for the entire fall season and can make any house feel festive. You can use your pumpkins just as they are to create a sweet vignette anywhere in the house, or have a little more fun and break out that spray paint!
When you are putting everything together, make sure you create different heights with your candles and flowers, and mix together candles, flowers and other pieces to complete your Thanksgiving centerpiece. A great idea is to put the display on a tray or stand so that you can easily move it when it’s time to make room for food. You always want more room for food!!!
